I download XP driver for N1240U from Canon. Everything seems to work including successful diagnostics check. But, when I try to scan using Toolbox, I get a TWAIN error message. My file system is NTFS....

scan with adob photoshop /import - from - your scaner device/ , it will be correctly, maybe toolbox not working normally, if with photoshop will not be resaults, in control panel \ in scaner and imaging devices see is there your scanner, if it will not be in there, reinstall driver.

This is very easy to do all you will need is the drivers to install your scanner with. Here is the link to get the drivers you need.

Scroll through the menu to select the scanner drivers you need. Before you install these drivers unplug the scanner from your computer. Then download and install the drivers. Turn your scanner on so it is powered up, plug the scanner back into the computer. A window will popup saying a new device or drivers are being installed. Once that completes its process reboot (restart) your computer and you now can scan from your computer.

I hope this helps you out, if it does please leave me some feedback.

At 600 dpi my CanoScan LiDE 60 copies on my HP LaserJet 1020 prints an almost all black page - and a very compressed scan copy on one side of the paper. I have reloaded my drivers without success.

I have many years reparing Canon scanners maybe I can help you.

My first question is why are you scanning at 600dpi? 200 to 300 dpi will work just fine for you. When you scan at that high of the dpi the scanner slows down it will operate much faster at a lower dpi. Try scanning at a lower dpi and see if that corrects your problem. Also when you scan at that high your computer has to work harder to convert the image And the image will turn into a megabyte image instead of a kilobyte image and you will be able to store more images at the lower dpi on your hard drive. I hope this helps you out and if it does leave me some feed back.

I bought the Canon Canoscan N1240u flatbed scanner. I downloaded the drivers and plugged in the cord that came with it but it doesn't do anything.

Just to be sure, did you install the driver in addition to downloading it? Full software or basic driver. The software must be installed before connecting the data cable. What OS are you using? (if you have Vista 64-bit, it is not compatible) If you didn't install the software, uninstall the OS driver and disconnect the data cable before attempting to install the Canon software. Otherwise see the notes for scanning with other software.

First are you trying to use the scanner buttons? These will only work if the full software is installed. For the buttons to work, you have to set up the scanner button destinations in the Canon software first. Also a monitoring program must be running for the button presses to work.

So try scanning from the computer first. If you still get an error, try a new data cable. If you are using a USB hub, try a direct connection. Make sure your USB ports work with a known working device. You can also check if the ports are disabled for security (in the Device Manager for Windows) or power savings (an advanced setting from the Screen Saver).

Once you have scanned successfully from the computer, go to the Settings section of the Toolbox to set the default destinations for the scan buttons.

If you only installed the basic driver, you can scan with Paint (XP or Vista), File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista also has Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery to acquire scans. I don't know the Mac software. Third-party software will also work if installed.

I hope this helps.

"warming up" all the time

If you go to the Canon Support site for this scanner they have a firmware upgrade that seems to specifically address this problem:

Canon CanoScan LiDE 500F... Problem:

Ideally, if the scanner can be tried on another computer, that would determine if there is a hardware problem. If the problem persisted on the other computer, then the indication would be a physical hardware issue that would not be fixable at the user level. Just be sure that you have cycled the lock switch a few times leaving it in the unlocked position. Also, for testing purposes, make sure nothing is on the glass when scanning. This is mainly in relation to heavy items such as books. If an item is heavy enough, it could put enough pressure on the scanner glass to push on the scanning element, preventing it from moving and giving a false indication that the unit is locked.

Good luck.
